In March of this year, we decided to go hunting in Dali, Yunnan, China because we heard that there were many wild animals there, and the scenery and culture were diverse. We wanted to experience different hunting environments and methods, and also wanted to appreciate the natural and cultural scenery of Dali. We booked a professional hunting travel agency, which arranged all the necessary equipment and permits for us. We were most looking forward to night hunting because it was a challenge we had never tried before and was the most exciting part. For night hunting, we chose the Wildguarder Owler1 night vision binoculars from a brand in Shenzhen, China, which we found online and were the most suitable product for our needs.
Night vision binoculars are essential equipment for night hunting, which can allow us to see targets clearly in the dark, improving hunting success rates and safety. We searched online for many brands and models of night vision binoculars and finally chose the Wildguarder Owler1 night vision binoculars from a brand in Shenzhen, China, because they had the following features and advantages:
- They use advanced digital night vision technology, which can provide clear images in complete darkness without any auxiliary light source.
- They have 4x optical zoom and 5x digital zoom, which can allow us to observe distant targets without losing detail.
- They have a built-in infrared illuminator, which can provide additional brightness up to 300 meters away without exposing our position.
- They have a built-in camera and microphone, which can shoot and record high-definition video and audio, making it convenient for us to review and share our hunting experiences.
- They have a built-in WIFI module, which can transmit images and sound in real-time through a mobile app, keeping us in contact and collaboration with our companions.
- They have a waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof design, which can adapt to various harsh environments and climates.
- They have a lightweight and comfortable appearance and weight, which can allow us to wear and use them for a long time without feeling fatigued.
After ordering online, we quickly received the night vision binoculars we ordered. We opened the package and found them very exquisite and practical, with detailed instructions and accessories included. We followed the steps in the instructions and installed the battery and memory card, and then adjusted the parameters and settings. We tried their functions and found them very easy to use, with clear and stable images, clear and bright sound, and simple and convenient operation. We were very satisfied with our choice and looked forward to using them to hunt in Dali.
We stayed in Dali for three days, with different hunting plans and routes each day. Our travel agency arranged professional guides and drivers for us, who were very familiar with the local terrain and animals, and were also very friendly and responsible. We would leave in the evening each day, arrive at the designated hunting area, and then wait and search for targets there. We would hunt until late at night each day and then return to the hotel to rest.
In these three days, we hunted many different animals, some of which we had never seen before. We hunted wild boars, rabbits, chickens, ducks, deer, foxes, wolves, and more. Every time we hunted an animal, we would use our night vision binoculars to shoot and record it, and then transmit it to our companions through the WIFI module, sharing our joy and achievements. We would also bring the animals back to the hotel and have the chef cook delicious dishes for us, letting us taste the unique flavors of Dali.
Of course, hunting is not always smooth sailing. We also encountered some difficulties and dangerous situations. Once, we found a huge wild buffalo on a grassland, which looked very fierce and strong. We decided to try to shoot it, so we quietly approached it and prepared to shoot. Just as we were about to shoot, it suddenly discovered us and charged at us. We were frightened and ran away, luckily the driver came to rescue us in time. If we hadn’t had the night vision binoculars to see its actions, we might have been knocked down by it.

In addition to hunting, we also visited some attractions and tasted some food in Dali, deepening our understanding and appreciation of Dali’s nature and culture. Here are some of the places we visited and things we ate:
Chongsheng Temple Three Pagodas: This is the iconic building of Dali, located by Erhai Lake, and is a long-standing Buddhist temple. The three pagodas are Thousand-Year-Old Pagoda, Chongsheng Temple Pagoda, and Luohan Pagoda, which have different heights and shapes and are very spectacular. We took many photos there and also went inside the temple to feel the atmosphere and culture of Buddhism.
Erhai Lake: This is the mother lake of Dali and also the largest plateau freshwater lake in China. It is surrounded by Cangshan Mountain and Bai ethnic villages, forming a beautiful picture. We walked by the lake, enjoyed the lake and mountain scenery, and also took a boat ride on the lake to feel the clarity and coolness of the lake water.
Dali Ancient Town: This is the historical center of Dali and also a representative of Bai ethnic culture. It retains the architectural style and city walls of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, with a strong ancient charm and folk customs. We wandered around many small shops, bought some special handmade crafts and souvenirs, and also tasted some local snacks and tea drinks.
Foreigner Street: This is the liveliest street in Dali Ancient Town because many foreigners have opened bars, cafes, restaurants, and more there. It has a strong international atmosphere and multiculturalism, and also attracts many young people and artists. We had a Western-style dinner there, drank some beer, listened to some live music, and felt the vitality and fashion of Dali.
Shaxi Ancient Town in Yunnan: This is an ancient town not far from Dali, famous for its well-preserved buildings from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It is known as the “Oriental Venice” because of its well-connected water system and stone bridges. We appreciated the ancient town’s style and water views, and also visited some historical and cultural attractions such as museums, temples, and archways.
Dali cuisine: Dali has a rich variety of cuisine, both Bai ethnic specialties and Yunnan flavors. We tried many different dishes and snacks, such as Erhai fish, liangfen, rushan, shaguo erkuai, roast tofu, glutinous rice balls, and more. We thought Dali’s cuisine was very fresh and delicious, and also very suitable for our taste.
Through these attractions and cuisines, we have a deeper and more comprehensive understanding and appreciation of Dali. We think Dali is a charming and diverse place, with natural beauty and cultural highlights. We think Dali is a place worth visiting again and again, and we hope to have the opportunity to come here again, discover more surprises and joys.
This is our entire process and feelings of hunting in Dali, and we are very happy and satisfied with our choices and experiences. We think this trip not only allowed us to enjoy the fun and excitement of hunting but also allowed us to appreciate the beauty and charm of Dali. We are very grateful to the night vision binoculars for providing us with such high-quality and convenient services, allowing us to better experience the charm of night hunting. We are also very grateful for the arrangements and assistance of the travel agency and guide, allowing us to complete our hunting plan smoothly and safely. We hope to have the opportunity to come to Dali again, continue to explore and challenge ourselves, and hope that more people can come to Dali and feel its beauty and wonders.
